Subject: Harrowing

This harrowing pamphlet describes incidents of brutality by Nazi's inside the political prisoner camp Sonnenburg on the Polish frontier in 1933. It was written by an escaped prisoner and has everything we have since learned to expect from Nazi's: inhumane torture, cruelty, guards described as "brigands and adventurers", sadistic criminals. This call for help, published in the US in 1934 by a Communist group, is all the more harrowing knowing how history would unfold. The persecution of these few hundred Communist activists, so early on in the Nazi regime, would eventually engulf and mirror the experiences of millions. It is a dark prophecy, and a warning for our own era to never forget or discount human rights abuses.
